The “non-festival” opens its doors in Lagoa this Friday. Talks, workshops, wine tasting and concerts by top Portuguese artists make up the three-day event’s programme.
Only two days to go until the much-anticipated CAMP’22 open its doors at the Morgado do Quintão winery. The three-day (October 7, 8 and 9) end-of-harvest event is jampacked with activities, talks and plenty of music by top Portuguese acts.
“CAMP is our harvest party, where we all get to celebrate the end of the season and the beginning of a new cycle. But in reality, it’s more than that: it’s a well-spent afternoon with great food and wine, amidst old and new friends, sharing and learning from great speakers, followed by an intimate once-in-a-lifetime concert by a top-notch performer amidst our estate’s ancient olive tree and vines. It’s our way of celebrating the past and the future together”, says Filipe Caldas de Vasconcellos, Founder of CAMP & Morgado do Quintão.
Located on the border between Lagoa and Silves, Morgado do Quintão will open its doors every day at 14:00 when food trucks serving snacks and drinks will be ready to help festival goers wind down and start mingling before activities start at 15:00.
CAMP’22 kick starts on Friday (07.10) with a sensorial exchange with perfumer Lourenço Lucena at 15:00, while urbanism expert Rita Castel’ Branco’s shares her thoughts for “A path to the wishful city”.
At 16:00, winemaker Joana Maçanita will lead a Morgado do Quintão wine tasting. At the same time, Algarve-raised Fado singer Carminho shares her life experience and career with a group of students from Lagoa’s ESPAMOL secondary school.
The day’s final talk is given by Maria Manuela Restivo, who will discuss “Rural imaginaries in artistic creation”, while André Sancho gives a ceramics workshop. Returning to her roots, Fado singer Carminho puts on an exceptional performance at 21h00.
Saturday (08.10) promises to be other-worldly, as the talks start with astrologer Duarte Miranda Mendes discussing the laws of Astrology, and Claudio Garrudo, who will share his passion for photography and editing, both at 15h00.
At 16:00, Teresa Júdice presents the preview screening of her poetic documentary “Tilt”, as Joana Maçanita leads her second festival wine tasting. Pedro Teixeira takes festival-goers on a trip into the psychedelic world with his talk, and Wesley Sacardi teaches participants how to work with wood at 17h00.
Singer, musician and songwriter Bruno Pernadas gives a concert at 21:00, after which he will host an intimate conversation with the CAMP’22 audience.
On Sunday (09.10), photographer Isabel Saldanha takes participants “In search of a Place” through her lenses at 15:00, and eco-warrior Carla Martins shares with her audience how to avoid greenwashing.
Musician Márgio Laginha will give a unique class to a group of students from Portimão’s Bemposta Schools. At the same time, Filipe Vasconcelos takes over the wine tasting corner with his selection of Morgado do Quintão wines at 16:00.
Raquel Marinho shares her passion for poetry at 17:00, while Mónica Franco takes visitors “into nature” with her workshop. The festivities close with the musical mastery of pianist and composer Mário Laginha. The perfect way to share the end of the harvest season.
